FEBRUARY 2017 RRC CLUB SHIPMENT (Ships the week of February 20, 2017)
Amapola Creek by Richard Arrowood has been built on a solid foundation of making wines of "quality without compromise”. But there is no resting on one’s laurels, even after a career that started in 1965 and continues 50+ years later.
Our February 2017 Richards Reserve Club selection features Amapola Creek Zinfandel from the famous Monte Rosso red soil vineyard.
The 2013 Zinfandel Monte Rosso (680 cases coming in at 16% alcohol) is 100% Zinfandel. Made from 125-year-old head-pruned vines, the wine has a dense ruby/purple color, a big, sweet kiss of black cherry, blackcurrant and blackberry with some dusty, loamy soil undertones and pepper as well as hints of charcuterie and spice. It is full-bodied, lavishly rich, and stunningly pure. It should make a savory mouthful for at least a decade. 95 Points – Robert Parker, Jr., March 2016, RRC Price $40.80 (Retail Price $48)
The unfined, unfiltered 2012 Zinfandel Monte Rosso Vineyard Vinas Antiguas (815 cases produced) is a meaty, dark plum-colored wine exhibiting aromas of grilled steak and herbs. Peppery, spicy, full-bodied and rich with 15.5% natural alcohol, it cuts a broad, expansive swath across the palate. Drink this gorgeous Zinfandel over the next 5-6 years. 93 Points – Robert Parker, Jr., December 2014, RRC $40.80 (Retail Price $48)
